Core Piece #1

Core Piece #1

1974
Sculpture, Stone
The making of sculpture becomes a ritual when the sculptor becomes as one with it and the parts fall into its whole as if in a trance.
The residue returns to the earth, or on occasion reappears clothed in new identity. These core pieces were once core residue of The Inner Stone of Area 4.
Original Noguchi Collection
Quotations by Isamu Noguchi from The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum (New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1987), unless otherwise noted. The Noguchi Museum gives thanks to the many talented photographers who have documented Isamu Noguchi’s works, particularly Kevin Noble, who has photographed the Museum’s collection for decades, and Shigeo Anzai and Michio Noguchi, whose portraits of the original Museum installations continue to provide inspiration and insight.
